In SpaceEngine you traverse the universe where known details about stars, galaxies, and planets are represented as realistically as possible within the limits of our current knowledge but also where details are filled in procedurally. You can visit Venue or some fictional, procedurally generated planet in some far off solar system.
A lot of work has been going into this side project of Vladimir Romanyuk's as evident in the most breathtaking depictions of worlds both real and created. Even the computer-created worlds are created from guesses the software makes based on real data.
